My top 5 Glossier makeup picks

On Monday I shared with you my top Glossier skincare products. Now, I am excited to take it a step further by rounding up my five favorite, can’t-live-without-’em makeup products from the cult beauty brand!

As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I am so thrilled to be celebrating my one-year anniversary as a Glossier Rep here, on Haute Mess, all week long! I also want to take the time to thank YOU, my readers, for your continued support throughout the past year; it means so much to me.

Stretch Concealer: Instead of foundation, I use a spot concealer to even out my skin‘s tone. Stretch Concealer applies seamlessly (unlike other spot concealers I’ve tried), camouflaging blemishes, redness and dark circles. To make this userfriendly product even easier, I always let the warmth of my fingers blend Stretch into my skin–no tools necessary!

This product definitely lives up to its name; it stretches over spots without compromising coverage, especially when you allow it about 30 seconds to get tacky before blending it out. Stretch also neutralizes redness and dark circles with an unbeatable real-skin finish. For me, it is the perfect everyday concealer.

Wowder: Glossier formulated the setting/blotting powder of my dreams! I actually have a whole post dedicated to this one-of-a-kind powder, so I won’t go into too much detail here.

But, I will say that with normal-to-oily skin, powder is pretty much a necessity for me. Otherwise, all other makeup tends to slip right off if I don’t put a powder on top. Not all powders are created equally, though.

Most tend to sit on the skin, emphasizing dry patches and looking caky. Wowder, on the other hand, keeps excess oils at bay and makeup in place with a flawless, never-flat finish.

Wowder is virtually undetectable on the skin, even under bright flash. It doesn’t affect skin’s tone or settle into any fine lines–ever. Thanks to diamond powder and Vitamin E, it looks glowy and smooth all day long!

I use Wowder day and night, for both casual and formal occasions (and everything in between).

(Plus, the packaging is great. The trampoline mesh ensures you never waste any product, while the brush is equal parts dense and soft.)

Boy Brow: Even though I have naturally full brows, Boy Brow keeps my hairs in place all day. The applicator makes it easy to brush “sprouts” upwards, making you look more awake and polished.

I use the brown shade to fill in any small gaps and make my entire makeup look look put-together. A little eyebrow makeup is essential for me when the rest of my face is done up, or else my brows tend to get lost.

If I accidentally get a little Boy Brow on my skin, there is never any reason to worry. I just let it dry (it takes between five and 10 seconds), then wipe it away with my ring finger. Quick and easy!

Did you see my recent IG post on how I apply Dusk and Haze? It went live after Glamour mag printed a feature on Cloud Paint.

Cloud Paint: This gel-creme blush definitely took some getting used to, but now that I have the hang of it, I can’t get enough!

I mentioned on Instagram over the weekend that my favorite shades are Haze and Dusk, but I love Beam, too. While Haze is a gorgeous berry color ideal for creating a post-workout flush without the workout, Dusk is a super easy, natural-looking way to create a little definition and to contour those cheekbones.

Beam is my go-to for no-makeup makeup days. It gives a really fresh, sun-kissed glow on the apples of the cheeks, and I’m obsessed.

Lip Gloss: No sparkles, no pigment, no fuss–just long-lasting, nourishing, glassy shine.

I love the look of a glossy lip, but most formulas make my pout peel like crazy. Not Glossier’s, though! This thick gloss, rich in Vitamin E and conditioning polymers, ensures a nourishing and non-goopy experience for the lips, whether it’s worn alone or on top of a lipstick or stain.
